Creative Workspace in Bedrooms

I've been wanting a creative work space in my home for a while. Currently when I'm working on a project / blogging or sewing my dining room turns into my workroom leaving our home feeling cluttered. When your a small home dweller, space is at a premium. In our petite 1950s rancher, there's no extra room in our house for me to have a dedicated office, which doesn't bother me at all since during the weekday grind I'm in my office 24/7. 

However, there is a nook in our bedroom that was formally our old closet before we re-built our home. I believe this space would work perfectly for my needs. I've been hesitant to claim the area as my own, because I pictured this area as a reading spot in our bedroom. It just makes so much more sense to create a functional zone in our bedroom where I can draw / paint / sew / blog and craft a little, leaving our dining room free of my creative clutter. I shared this picture on Instagram of this nook a few weeks back and since then, I've been working on a design plan to bring my needs and vision for this area to life. Here's the space. 

My plan is to use either an existing console table in the space or buy the West Elm Parsons console table, I also love the desk version but the depth console tables may work better in this space. Since I'm a laptop girl a console table should suit my needs just fine. I want this area of my bedroom to feel cohesive to the rest of the room and not like a plopped a desk in my bedroom, basically I want the look to feel intentional. I love my Safavieh benches and they're staying! I plan to have them reside under my console table and down the line if needed, I'll bring in a actual chair. I love large scale artwork and would love a large abstract piece residing above my desk. My plan is to also incorporate a pin board into the are along with a few Etsy prints, I've been admiring. I also have this pretty lamp from West Elm, I bought ages ago from a local consignment store that should work perfect on top of my console table. 

I've been pinning pretty creative work spaces like crazy and here's a few I adore. Notice how the desk / console tables all feel purposeful and pretty in these bedrooms / living rooms.

Now that the key elements of my creative work space have been decided on, I need to confirm the existing console table I have is a good option or take the plunge and buy the West Elm console table. As progress starts taking shape in his former closet turned nook in our bedroom, I'll be sharing sneak peeks on Instagram and my blog. 

In your home have you carved out a little creative space? Have a full room dedicated to yourself or like my current situation is your dining room currently your creative work zone?
